I enjoyed the food and drink at Hersh's. I was in town from out of state visiting family. They chose Hersh's for the menu and atmosphere. The food choices were varied enough for all of us. The bar choices were fun and delicious. The waitress was attentive, and and answered all question with knowledge. Thank you for an outstanding experince.

Service was great! We had the eggplant Parmesan and the scaccio pizza and both were delicious ! We were there during happy hour? I ordered a red wine which was $5. Excellent value. This was our first time there and we will definitely go back.

A group of friends ,who gather every 6or 8 weeks for dinner , are always looking for fun places to dine. We had a variety of meals from pizza to fish to fried chicken. All were delicious , and our server Ali was superb! I will return as I'm certain the others will.

We love Hersh's. Every meal is consistently excellent, whether we're stopping in for some pizza or looking forward to a special occasion meal. This visit was for our anniversary, and the spring onion fritters, gnocchi, pizza, and tiramisu were all amazing. Awesome food in a lovely welcoming atmosphere.

It was good but not above and beyond- it was my birthday and it wasn’t acknowledged at all . The waitress seemed bothered by any questions we asked and not helpful with menu suggestions or recommendations - i def wasn’t expecting a gang of people singing to me but a complimentary dessert or even mention of my bday would have been nice.

We love this place! The menu is excellent. Sometimes they change up certain menu items depending on the season. The mushroom crostini appetizer is delectable. The winter salad is so fresh and delicious and we always get the margherita pizza with pepperoni! You will not be disappointed with Hershes!

Just reserve ahead of time because the tables fill up.

We had heard a lot of good things about Hersh's and we live in Federal Hill, so we decided to give it a try on a weekday evening. We found parking on the street without any problem, which is not often easy in Federal Hill, and so that was a very good start. We received a friendly greeting and we were seared right away ( we had made reservations ).
The menu was quite interesting and reasonably priced. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful in answering our questions. My wife ordered the winter salad and for her entrée the carmelized onion and mushroom pizza. She enjoyed both and the portions were quite generous. I ordered the beef and tomato soup which was truly outstanding and my entrée was the rockfish served on a bed of farro. The fish was superb, certainly some of the best rockfish I have had in quite a while. However, the farro, which I had never tasted before, left me wishing that the fish had been served with some creamy mashed potatoes. We took advantage of the happy hour wine prices for several glasses of a tasty Italian red and finished off the meal with some delicious locally made ice cream.
The only negative feature that we would mention was the noise level. There were times when my wife and I, sitting across from each other at a table for two, could not understand what the other was saying. We also even had difficulty hearing everything that the waitress was telling us about the items on the menu. The loud music being played over the restaurant speakers and close proximity of the tables is not conducive to an intimate conversation or quiet dining experience.

We went with another couple, ordered four appetizers to share around, and sampled each other's entrees. This might be the only time in my 20+-year dining history around Baltimore that every single item was delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server was cheerful and helpful but not intrusive and recommended a great wine for the table. Hersh's is a Baltimore gem!

The food was good and the restaurant was quiet. I had high expectations because of the online ratings and friends experiences and I wasn’t disappointed, but I also wasn’t too impressed. The brussels appetizer was different than advertised online and slightly over cooked. The pasta was very good but small for 1 person if I didn’t have other food coming.

Pastas (all home-made) were excellent and we all liked the fact that they came in both small and large portions. The variety of appetizers and entrees was impressive and some were different than usually encountered. We all (party of 3) enjoyed our meals. A pizza to go also proved to be outstanding--great crust. Prices were more than fair, including the wines.

Only blip in the meal was the "Rockfish Soup"--never before encountered on a menu and much anticipated. Unfortunately, while the soup was tasty no fish pieces of any kind or size, not even shreds, were found in the entire bowl--none.

The service was decent but the food was pretty terrible. Pastas were dry, over seasoned, and my coworkers chicken came out with a raw center. To say this place is a Baltimore staple would be a stretch.
